Twitter = toilet wall graffiti


I like this analogy, I really do. Don’t get me wrong I use twitter a little to follow a few industry people, but sometimes out of curiosity i look at the trending subjects and boy is it depressing. Comparing it to toilet graffiti is actually really flattering to this tsunami of nothing. What should we call these naff, pointless staus updaters….Twankers?

Anyways, the graffiti analogy isn’t mine, I’m not that clever, it was penned by my guru de jour, Chris Arnold in realtion to the use by British pollies of social media in the current election campaign. Read on, Chris is da man.
